Man o man so I am definitely getting stronger after 3 solid weeks in the gym. I am in no way new to lifting weights but this is the first time in awhile that I have put lifting at the front of the line in terms of goals and priority. Anyways I am doing Wendlers 5-3-1 Program and its going really great but I think I may have underestimated my maxes when I first set out three weeks ago. For example I had originally put my maxes at these numbers:
Anyways long story short after 3 weeks this happened:
Squat- 315 for 9 reps, my last set was supposed to be 1 rep at 270 but i knew it wasn’t enough
DL- 355 for 6 reps, last set should have been 1 for 270 as well
Bench-260x5 reps, pretty close in terms of where i should be, not worried about moving the max.
OH Press- 155 for 7 reps, pretty close too. Not worried about moving the max
